Ariel Castro's Outrageous Request for One of His Victims Will Sicken You

Twisted 223

Ariel CastroAriel Castro, accused of holding three women hostage for a decade in a house of horrors, may be one of the more depraved men on Earth. But he's apparently also one of the most self-entitled. If the charges against him are proven true, then he cares about absolutely no one except himself -- so I guess his latest request shouldn't be too much of a surprise. Yet somehow it still shocks in its self-consuming self-focused memememe-ness.

Ariel Castro asked the judge in his case to be able to see his daughter, 6-year-old Jocelyn. The daughter that Amanda Berry had against her will. Because he allegedly kidnapped her and tortured and raped her. Now he wants to visit the child he didn't enroll in school or feed healthy meals or even allow outside very much. The one he allegedly forced Amanda, her mother, to have in a plastic kiddie pool with no medical help. Yeah, that daughter.

The judge denied Castro's request, saying, "I just think that would be inappropriate."

Ya think?!

As if Berry hasn't been through enough, to take away her daughter, even for a moment, and force her to see the beast who allegedly put them all through sheer hell for a decade? Sounds like a shitty idea, Castro. Glad the judge agrees.

Castro does not seem to yet understand reality. He can't yet seem to comprehend that his reign is over. That he is no longer Lord of his domain -- like he was in that house in Cleveland, where he allegedly kept the three women chained up day and night, with pulleys to yank them up off the floor and keep them hanging. Where he allegedly beat them if they tried to escape. Where he allegedly kicked one of the women until she had a miscarriage. Where he stole their youth.

He thinks he can make a request that will make HIM happy -- and have it fulfilled! Hey, why not? He had three women's lives at his whim for a decade. He is accustomed to getting his way. But no more.

Castro may have cared about Jocelyn in his depraved fashion -- for that is the only way he knows how to care -- but that is the type of caring that child does not need. She may miss him, because he is still her daddy, and according to reports, she was treated decently -- and she knew nothing else. Neighbor Charles Ramsey said that when he first helped Amanda out of the house, she grabbed her daughter, who was crying for her "daddy."

What that child will go through when the truth begins to attack her young mind is inconceivable. When she is an adult she can decide if she wants to see him -- presumably in prison. But she will know the horror her mother went through, and she will have to struggle with that her whole life. Her mother reportedly still has nightmares every night about Castro. About "daddy."

No, Castro. You don't get to see your daughter. You don't get to manipulate her anymore. You'll get your day in court and that is more than enough privileges for you.

Do you think Ariel should get to see Jocelyn?

There is obviously something wrong with him mentally and he doesn't comprehend reality. We're all trying to make sense out of this and we can never because the fact is that Castro is a very sick individual who I believe has many different mental disorders on top of one another.

Honestly, many men who behave in similar (although obviously less drastic, yet still heinous) ways end up with sole custody. This mom has the benefit of her case being so publicized. Men who rape women and children, abuse their families and hold them hostage as prisoners of their torment routinely walk away with custodial rights. Sadly, it isn't all that far fetched.

I'm all for the death penalty in some cases. This is one of those cases in my book. Just chair this dude so he doesn't have to breath our air anymore. Nobody wants to pay for this douche to live. I'm glad the judge said no. Those poor women and that poor little girl to all be put in that situation. To raise a child like that and it being all she knows. The poor mother has to help her daughter and her self cope through out the years as she grows. Pardon my french but F@*# this dude. He shouldn't get any visits, yard time, or interaction with the general pop. Unless they want a piece of him Ha. He wont be gone soon enough in my book. Subhuman coward.

This evil man should not be allowed to see his daughter or any other family member for that matter. He should not be allowed to make phone calls and he should be chained up in his cell and not alliwed to go outside or visit with other inmates. He needs to go through every unthinkable act he put those poor girls through for the next ten years!

I hope everybody here realizes that there are 31 states in the US that give rapists the ability to pursue parental rights.

@greeneyedmom actually putting him in gen pop would be awesome. I dated a corrections officer and all those things people say about prisoners vs. anyone who hurts a child/baby, totally true. Also the CO's won't exactly rush to bust it up. If its just the chomo getting hurt, it's no skin off anyone else's butt.

I do NOT think this human life should get to see that little girl & I am glad the judge agrees! I DO think it odd that murderers get visitation rights to their children while in prison yet this man does not. I AM glad this little girl does not have to see him.
